We came here for lunch and loved everything. They have parking across the street and the view from the dining room is very nice...you can see the canal with boats going by. No outside dining, which was a disappointment, but the food and drinks were perfect. I had a Grilled Southwestern Chicken Ceasar Salad...so good! My husband had the Ahi... More

I called for reservations a week before Mother's Day. The hostess took my name and number, and informed me that they were working on the seating plans and I would receive a call from them with the time. I called back several days later; the hostess assured me that I had a reservation and the manager would call me back... More

Visited Rachael's Waterside Grill for dinner. Had a nice time, food was very good, place was clean n comfortable. Only gripe was that our waitress was lacking attention n it wasn't exactly busy. Other than that minor detail. All good.

Excellent service, nice canal view and great, creative menu that will adapt to any taste. The seafood chowder is among the best I've ever had. Besides specials there are six species of fish always on the menu, plus three market selections each day. Each of the nine fish can be prepared in any one of four ways-Blackened, Feta Oreganata Crusted,... More

I went for dinner with my family, and I loved it! The food is absolutely delicious, the prices are good, a pretty view, a nice environment and the services and attention of our waiter Tonny made everything perfect. The most fresh and tastiest seafood I have ever had! We are definitely going back soon for another great dinner experience.

very good food on the Nautical Mile in Freeport. The food was too much in volume, so be careful with your order. Great big windows makes it really nice on a beautiful day.

I've been there many times and this place is the best on the Nautical Mile, they have a small menu but the food is amazing. You must try their blackened chicken and shrimp gorgonzola on the dinner menu and in the summer time they have a watermelon sangria that is off the hook

Rachel's is Freeport's Nautical Mile biggest secret. The diversity of food from Seafood to Steaks to Chicken to pasta dishes are prepared by IMHO by one of New York's best kitchens! The appetizers are superb. The entrees are all good. The staff is watchful of their clients and the management is friendly and caring.
